Feenix Vitesse Optical Gaming Mouse Review

Inside the Vitesse




Four screws hold the top half to the bottom section of the Vitesse, and additional weighting is found under a black plastic cover within the top section. As for the lower part, the PCB is a bold red color, and it offers a large plastic plate to distribute the LED lighting evenly across the large logo found on the top section.





The scroll wheel uses a TTC switch to track the scroll speed, and the left clock button is backed with an Omron D2FC-F-7N(10M) switch, boasting a ten million click lifespan. There is also a tiny LED on the left edge, which illuminates a tiny square found on the outside, and in general is tough to see, even when illuminated.




The pair of buttons used to go back and forward on web pages are backed with a pair of with Huano switches. These switches are soft in their activation and offer a slight click when activated.




We also find white Huano switches used under the DPI selector buttons. With these, however, the activation force in increased, and the report click is much more audible.




As for the optical sensor of choice, we indeed found the Avago/Pixart PMW3310DH, the same one used in the DM1 Pro. While the DPI is limited to 5000, we found no issues with this sensor in tracking at any level you happen to find most comfortable for regular use.




Also, just like we saw in the DM1 Pro, the Vitesse also uses the Holtek HT68FB560 MCU. This MCU is an 8-bit processor and is more than capable of handling what the Vitesse has to offer.




The last of the switches are seen here. Under the scroll wheel, Feenix chose to use a red TTC switch, which is tougher to press than all the rest and does offer an audible click. Under the right click button, we find the match to the left, where they used a ten million click Omron switch.




Once we got the Vitesse all put back together, and powered it, we find the default setting is at 1800 DPI as indicated by the glow of white light through the Feenix logo on the heel. Looking closely at the side buttons, you see just a hint of the illuminated square near the bottom edge, and it is not visible unless you are looking at it head on.
